2.Warming pumpkin cocktail with spices

This cocktail will not only please you with a bright appearance, but also warm you on a cold winter day.

One of the most delicious vegetables, in addition, it is simply a champion in the content of nutrients: it contains fats, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, carotene, potassium, calcium and iron, vitamins C, B1, B2, B5, B6, E, K, PP and even a rare vitamin T, which helps to accelerate metabolic processes in the body.

In fact, pumpkin has a large number of varieties — there is a pumpkin that looks more like a squash, there is a sweeter pumpkin, there is a less sweet one. When the pumpkin is ripe, its center should be quite empty, and the seeds should be well formed. The most delicious pumpkin happens in late September – early October. Both the bright color and the sweet flesh are what you need, the skin is thin and it cuts easily.

The longer it is stored in winter, the more difficult it is to chop it. The skin is getting rough, and a man’s hand is needed to help in the kitchen to “destroy” a large pumpkin. I don’t know if you know, but pumpkins have female and male flowers. Men’s ones can be plucked and made in batter, because the pumpkin will never grow out of them anyway, and they themselves are extremely tasty. They can also be stuffed with cheese, baked and served as a snack with white wine — this is also very tasty.
